The 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde, starring Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, is an excellent film. It is, of course, almost complete nonsense as far as depicting what Bonnie and Clyde were like; the film treats them as cool, misguided kids in love and trying to have fun. They actually were, of course, psychotic killers who murdered people for no reason whatsoever. Now, to be sure, Clyde had his issues – he appears to have been horribly brutalized as a youth in prison. On the other hand, he landed in prison as a youth because he decided to become a crook at a young age. There’s no real explanation for why Bonnie decided to become a killer, other than general insanity. Netflix has a new production called The Highwaymen covering the pair from the other side: how law enforcement dealt with two people who killed in cold blood nine police officers. There has been controversy about it I never understood: some people taking issue with the likely chance that the cops, in the end, just ambushed the pair and blew them to heck and gone without a warning. My view: when you’re dealing with psychotic killers who have already demonstrated they’ll even kill cops without blinking, you don’t give them a chance to return fire.

New York is now going to tax the street if you go for a drive. Wasn’t there once a song about this?

The concept of time is now racist.

Multiculturalism is good, as long as it isn’t an American culture. Some are trying to change that.

Related: moves to ban Thomas Jefferson. One of the defining marks of the left is hatred – most especially hatred of Western Civilization in general and the United States in particular.

Democrats want to interrogate Fox News over their programming decisions. The Democrats are fascists at heart.

Joe Biden says he’ll keep his hands to himself from now on. If the Democrats wanted him to be their nominee, he’d be allowed to get out of this jam just as the Virginia Democrats were allowed to skate…but if the Democrats want Joe gone, this won’t do a darn thing to save him.

    I have watched the Warren Beatty/Faye Dunaway movie many times and it is a great movie. Public Enemies is another great movie about John Dillinger. That was a fascinating time and I look forward to watching The Highwaymen.

    The Democrats are fascists at heart.

    Of course they are. That’s why all of their political issues are manufactured and designed to control people. Healthcare, Climate Change, and Abortion are all manufactured crisis’s designed to force the public to submit to their agenda. MSNBC this morning is saying that Healthcare will be the #1 issue in 2020 and Republicans simply want to take it away from people. I know, it’s overly simplified narrative but it plays well with the progressive base. Kind of like when Democrats accuse corporations of wanting to kill off their customer base. It simply doesn’t make sense, but since when have Democrats made any sense?

    Time to kiss the ring:

    …a dozen Democratic candidates right now are running for president and they’re all making campaign stops over the next three days right here in New York City for the National Action Network convention, formed in 1991 by my friend and colleague Reverend Al Sharpton,”

    And they had better be in favor of reparations or tax evader and extreme racist Al Sharpton may not endorse them. Good to see that the Democrat Plantation is alive and well.

    And there is Stacy. She is learning quickly

    Stacy Abrams, who has not decided yet on whether she will be running for political office, stated in her Wednesday speech: “I believe in identity politics.”

    “And I believe identity politics are the politics that win,” she added.

    And the feminization of our society continues:

    The University of Kansas is offering a course on angry white men and the role of “dominant and subordinate masculinities” as they connect to “rights-based movements of women, people of color, homosexuals and trans individuals.”

    “Angry White Male Studies” (HUM 365), which is being offered during the fall 2019 semester, will explore “the deeper sources of this emotional state while evaluating recent manifestations of male anger” in Europe and America from 1950 to present, according to the course description.

    Everybody is afraid of white men …. and maybe they should be.

      All part of their plan to write us off and out – make no mistake about it, 100 years from now, if these people win, all human advances will be assigned in the history books to non-white people.

        Masculinity is under attack … by design.

        This is where we need civil disobedience. Civil disobedience is good for the country. It’s our rights as citizens to defend the family, the samctity of marriage. Defend Male as Alpha dominants, the one who administers authority, as role models for children. Defend Females as their rightful role models to children as feminine, kind, and gentle. The care takers. The helpers. Not the trash women that liberal feminism has created, women with their head shaved, going around with rings hanging from their noses, dark black lipstick, that kind of nonsense. It looks sick.

        If they win and get their way, most of the advances will be gone, and a medieval lifestyle may be ‘aspirational’

      When Eric Holder ignored a Congressional subpoena related to Fast and Furious, Congress found him in contempt, and that was the end of it. I suspect the same thing will happen with Barr and the Mueller Report. If it goes through the courts, and the Supreme Court orders Barr to turn over the full unredacted report plus all supporting documents, then it might get interesting, but the Supreme Court has even less enforcement power than Congress. I’d like to think that the Supreme Court can’t order something that is illegal on its face, but nothing much surprises me any more.

        In a perfect world, Attorney General Barr would, upon receipt of subpoenas from Adam Schiff and Jerold Nadler, arrest both of them for conspiracy to violate federal law.

        I think we can do more along these lines – on a lot of issues. For instance, I’d wait for the next murder by a Sanctuary beneficiary and then have the US Marshals arrest the chief of police and mayor of the city which let the illegal go in spite of a detainer. Try them for accessory to murder and for violating the civil rights of the deceased.

    You know you can see socialism from space. Nighttime view from satellite imagery, just look at Venezuala on the map, and that whole area is blacked out. No lights. I don’t know if it means anything, but you know, what’s happening there could very well happen right here, if something is not done to halt the inflow of people from South America to North America/U.S.A putting more strain and burden on our economy, causing a collapse of the system.
